For those who don’t know who I am, a little introduction about myself for all my new potential clients.
I am Rachael, a Freelance Airbrush Makeup Artist from Portsmouth, Hampshire, UK. I specialise in Weddings, Fashion/Beauty Photography, TV and Film using AIRBASE airbrushed makeup, which is designed to leave your skin looking flawless and will last you all day! I use an array of different high quality brands such as MAC Cosmetics, Bobbi Brown Cosmetics, Estée Lauder and many more…
I have been doing Makeup Artistry for over 8 years now, this isn’t just a hobby, it’s my life, my drive, my passion and it brings me pure happiness every time I get booked.
It all started off 8 years ago when I modelled for a makeup school in Southsea, Hampshire and whilst sitting in the chair having my makeup applied, I listened, watched and learnt A LOT!
I thought to myself, I could do this, so everything I took in from those sessions, I used to practice on my model friends when they were having photoshoots. For the first couple of years, I taught myself and with every job, my confidence grew, my passion grew and that’s when I looked into doing it more professionally. I got to know so many photographers and models which made me push harder to build a portfolio.
From there I moved on and completed a couple of courses in hair-styling and Airbrush Makeup which was the best thing I have done so far. The airbrush is such a wonderful product, not to everyone’s taste but to me… it’s my baby! I am now looking to push myself even further and get into Special Effects Makeup.
Getting to where I want to be is taking a little longer than I’m wanting it too due to having 2 small children, but it’s not going to stop me getting what I want in the future! So watch this space!
The services I offer at present are:
Weddings, Special Occasions such as Proms, Nights Out, Events etc., Model Portfolio Photoshoots, Body Art, Actors Headshots, TV/Film work, Commercial and I also work alongside Hair Salons. I also offer basic Hairstyling, Manicures and Face Painting using Snazzaroo water based paints.
If you want to contact me for any information at all, whatever it may be, don’t hesitate to send me a message.
Hope to work with you in the very near future,
Rachael – Rouge_MUA
